Rich, You left us to suddenly. You touched everyone in your own special way. You will always be remembered especially by me and close co workers that were your brothers and sisters. Your family is a special family that love and miss you and will stay strong for you. There are so many good memories with you over the 30 years we worked together. Will miss you immensely but we will meet up again sometime. Adrian
